I started this a few weeks back and finished it a couple of weeks ago. The picture isnt' the best and it doesn't let you see the true colors. It is brightly colored with shades of purples, oranges and reds. I was inspired to make this for Grandbaby by my friend GibKnitty. It was quick and fun to make. I did make a few adjustments to the original pattern. I ribbed the ends of the sleeves because it makes it easier to roll the sleeves up and keep them up. Sometimes sleeves are a little long for Grandbaby. I also didn't garter stitch the hood as the pattern called for. I like the way the hood looks with the garter stitch border, it flows with the sweater. Any way, I like it and will definitely knit this again.
I think I need to start another one for a gift soon. That means I get to go pick out yarn - yippee!!
I am a wife, mother and grandmother who works full time and loves crafts and beer. I am married to my soul mate who is a home brewer and we enjoy trying new beers. We have an amazing family that keeps life interesting. I love any kind of crafts and my interests change often. Knitting and crocheting are a constant for me though and offer relaxation - most of the time. Life for me is fun, crazy, and exhausting all at the same time. I hope you will enjoy reading about it. Thanks for stopping in. I hope you will visit often and feel free to leave a comment.
Friday Night Beer Review posts are about craft beers that we have tried. Reviews are not always posted on Friday nights, but the beers are typically drank on Friday nights. The "reviews" are just our comments and thoughts about different beers and our likes and dislikes. Hubby and I have different tastes so we hope you find this interesting. You will also find information about different breweries. I will even try to post some beer happenings when I can. This is our feable attempt to make folks aware of various craft brews, breweries and beer happenings. Enjoy!
